"El baño."

Translation:The restroom.

May 2, 2018



El baño is more for a bathroom in a person's house. Los servicios is the term more proper for a public bathroom.

Hi, Harry. Native Spanish speaker here. You can also say "¿Puedo usar el servicio (los servicios)?" (Can I use the bathroom?) as a formal way if you are not in your own house. But that does not necessarily mean that you are always saying it formally. I do it at my parents' house ("Voy al servicio") as something normal. And you can also say it to ask about "el baño (los baños)" in a coloquial manner if you are, for example, in a restaurant. I hope that helps ;-)

Interesting, that Russian has a word "баня" (read as: baña), which literally means "bath house", a Sauna of sorts, only somewhere between Finnish and Turkish Saunas. Guess it could come from Spanish "baño", along with the extremely versatile grammar.

The English Wiktionary is always a pretty good source for etymology questions. The Russian "баня" is a borrowing from the Latin "balneum", from which the Spanish baño also descended. Apparently these words developed in a very similar manner.

If el baño is Spanish for bathroom, what is the word for toilet?

All good! I just found out it can be el inodoro or el retrete or el servicio or el lavabo. All better than the USA-inspired PC 'bathroom'.

The term "El" referrs to a male, right? I said "His bathroom", why is this wrong? I thought that "El" referrs to a male. Obviously not. Why?

El is the masculine article "the", and it's used here because the noun baño is masculine.

The word él (with an accent) would be the pronoun "he". "His", on the other hand, is a possessive adjective, translated as su: "su baño" - "his bathroom".

I initially got it wrong. It asked me again so i quite confidently put in the bathroom, the restroom. IT SAID I WAS WRONG AGAIN! Ive bn trying over and over but to no avail :(

Did you actually write "the bathroom, the restroom"? You should decide on one of these words. There is only one "el baño" in the prompt.

September 2, 2018


But the correct answer it gave was both of them. Even tried each indiv.

I'm not sure about the mobile app, but you can buy "timed practice" in the store, and if you then "practice" in the web version, you can choose to do it in a timed manner. You'll get a set of 20 questions with a time limit, and you get 1 XP for every question you answer correctly within that time.

Why is "toilette" wrong?

September 11, 2019


I don't think English-speakers commonly spell the word this way. It's usually just "toilet".
